Hey guys! Sooo, this is my first ever fanfic; yay! I'm super excited to try my chops at writing. Hamilton on Disney+ has kind of blown my mind and it's totally sent me back into my Hamilton obsession from like, three years ago so I'm really hyped to write this! :) Just a few quick notes…
This fanfic is probably going to end up being more headcanon (it's modern so it can't follow the original plot anyway!). I was really inspired by Phillipa Soo's performance as Eliza; she is so so amazing and I really wanted to see more of the Hamilton family dynamic before Phillip died… Take a Break just isn't enough!
Since I'm a total novice to all of this, I would be eternally grateful if you guys could review… I will take all the constructive criticism I can get. Haha.. :)
This chapter is super short, I'm aware (all this stuff is longer than the actual writing... whoops!), but it's only the prologue. I will try to make the others much longer!
Anyways, enough of my rambling… Enjoy this (super short) chapter and please leave a review if you want; I'd really appreciate it! Thanks so much! :)
It was a cool, autumn Sunday afternoon and Eliza Hamilton was in the highest spirits as of late that she could remember. Pleasant moments like these were few and far between these days, so she made sure to cherish each one.
The Hamilton family had decided to come to the park that afternoon, seeing as the weather couldn't be more perfect. The sun shone brightly, and the leaves, deepened into rich yellows and oranges, drifted to the ground in the slight breeze that blew. Above all, though, Eliza's heart was full to the brim seeing her family all together and happy. It might just be a fleeting moment of bliss in their stressful and painful lives, but that made it all the more special.
Eliza grinned, seeing her husband Alexander push their son, four-year-old Phillip on the swings, hearing her boy's little giggle as his father pushed him higher and higher.
Sitting on a blanket in the grass, Eliza felt her daughter, ten-year-old Angelica rest her head on her shoulder. Her heart swelled. Angelica had been through so much in the past year, and her strength and beauty amazed Eliza every time she looked at her.
Entwining her fingers in her mother's, she stated "This has been the most wonderful afternoon, Mom, thank you". Grasping her daughter's hand tightly, she replied "It's been simply the best, Angie, sitting here with you. I love you so so much". "I love you more", Angelica quickly countered, and Eliza followed with a playful "Not possible!".
Her heart full of happiness and love, Eliza kissed the top of her daughter's shiny smooth head, wishing this moment could last forever.
